How Fast Networks Will MAke the World a Better Better Place

Speaker: Dr. Mike P. Wittie
RightNow Technologies Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, Montana State University

November 20, 2015 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Fischbach Room, Folsom Library
Hosted By: Dr. Stacy Patterson (x2054)


The enjoyment of interacting with others through the Internet is tied to network latency. In fact, the promise of a better world though application such as augmented reality, connected vehicles, and even brain-to-brain communications depends on fast and responsive networks. This talk will showcase recent work in the Algorithms+Networks Lab at Montana State University on understanding the relationship between network performance and user experience. I will also talk about our projects in mobile networks, content delivery, and distributed systems aimed at reducing network latency.


Since Fall 2011 Dr. Wittie is a RightNow Technologies Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Montana State University. He received his PhD in Computer Science from the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He also holds an MS in Computer Science and a BA in Cognitive Science from the University of Pennsylvania. At MSU he is a co-director of the Network+Algorithms Lab. His work focuses on making the networks more interactive to improve the Quality of User Experience (QoE) in applications such as Web, online gaming, augmented reality, and mobile apps. His lab is also involved in several interdisciplinary projects with connected vehicles, automatic transportation systems, and sexual assault prevention.
